De Bruyne tallied two assists in Sunday's 4-0 victory over Hungary in the Round of 16 at the Euros.

Rivaling Mesut Ozil and David Silva for most creative midfielder in the Premier League, De Bruyne picked out two perfect balls on set pieces, finding Toby Alderweireld in the 10th minute and having his effort saved by a fingertip later in the half. His second assist came on a through ball to Eden Hazard, who did the rest of the work himself to put Belgium up 3-0, just seconds after making it 2-0 to secure their place in the quarterfinals where they'll take on Wales.

De Bruyne won two tackles, attempted three shots, put in 11 crosses and earned an assist in Saturday's 3-0 steamrolling of Ireland.

After a quiet performance in the group opener versus Italy, De Bruyne looked like his usual dynamic self Saturday and he helped get the scoring under way as he slipped a pass to Romelu Lukaku at the top of the box before the latter slotted it home. De Bruyne is one of the most gifted attackers in the tournament and he should be in line for another big performance as his side look to wrap up second spot in the group Wednesday versus Sweden.

De Bruyne scored a goal on three shots (two on target) in Sunday's 2-2 draw with Arsenal.

De Bruyne was phenomenal all match and broke through the deadlock at the time just past halftime with a near post strike that exploited Petr Cech's biggest weakness. After sitting out the past two Premier League matches, the goal was his first since Apr. 2 and his second this calendar year (nine matches). Since arriving from Wolfsburg on the eve of the transfer window closing, he has seven goals and nine assists in the Premier League.

De Bruyne scored on four shots (three on target) and added one cross and two key passes in 56 minutes of play in Saturday's 4-0 win over Bournemouth.

The return of the creative midfielder immediately changed the face of the team. He was involved in almost every attack the Citizens had and even managed to return to the scoreboard. His early substitution was dictated due to him still gaining full fitness after more than three months absence from the fields. Once he's back to top form, though, his six goals and nine assists in just 18 Premier League starts and two shots, two crosses and 3.5 key passes average per game turn him into an irreplaceable fantasy force.

De Bruyne (knee/ankle) is expected to return after the international break, either against Bournemouth on April 2 or Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on April 6, the Manchester Evening News reports.

De Bruyne's absence has been a huge blow to City, who are now fighting for a top-four spot instead of the title. He is a tremendous fantasy option in nearly all formats, and his return will be a major boost to City and fantasy owners.

De Bruyne stepped up his training program ahead of returning from a knee injury he sustained in the Capital One Cup, reports the Daily Mail.

De Bruyne was able to remove his knee brace last month, and is now working with the strength-training coach and running outside. He will need some time to rebuild his fitness and sharpness, but the moves he is making on the training ground are encouraging for the team.
